For breakfast in Barcelona, you can chose between salty (sandwiches) and sweet (pastries), but eggs, bacon and/or jam are MIA. In that sense, Les Corts, being a traditional neighborhood, will give you the perfect opportunity to start the day differently.
This corner offers quite a variety of sandwiches, as you may have guessed. Besides its neat and modern look, Sandviĉo is worth a stop for both its beef and chicken with mushrooms sandwiches. On top of it all, there are two types of bread (olives or seeds) for gourmets’ further pleasure.

This cozy little cafeteria is quite hard to find, yet extremely close to Plaça de la Concòrdia. It’s recommended that you go on a Saturday, so you can take your time tasting their cakes. Although they do not offer brunch per se, you can compose it yourself with a piadina, one of their wonderful juices and a muffin or a slice of cake. Family Room Café is also the perfect spot for kids who have a cute corner for themselves.

This café looks like a coffee chain, with a local twist. Tardor amb caliu, whose name translates as ‘Autumn with warmth,’ is highly recommended for a study group meeting; nothing inspires more like the smell of baked goods, especially when they come with nice lighting and free wifi. Also, this café is open every day and from very early in the morning, in case you want to start your day by being extra productive.
If you like homemade quality food, stop looking because La trufa is everything you could want. It is possible to buy some appetizing ready-made food, or you may settle for a sandwich and finish with some chocolate. In any case, you will be receiving very friendly service. While the interior design isn’t anything too fancy or modern, the terrace is great.

This is the kind of place that will please everyone. Besides the charming environment and friendly service, the coffee and juices are excellent. You have vegan options and free wifi, and pets are welcome too. Desitjos is a hidden gem for artsy customers that believe in the cultural influence of bars and restaurants. For instance, there is a decent bookshelf for exchanging your latest reads.
